Notes regarding restructuring of the Humanist Movement
We are not eliminating the Humanist Movement; we are restructuring it, as has occasionally happened throughout our process according to the needs of the moment.
The Movement in its conception includes everything (organisms and action fronts).
Every person who joins an organism, by this very fact, is part of the Movement. The Movement constitutes the ambit of convergence and interchange of the members of the different organisms.
The Movement in itself does not count on any organizational forms: no councils, levels, functions (orientors, supports and administratives), financial collections or planned activities. In this way any double organization will disappear, eliminating overlaps.
The activities carried out will depend solely on the free initiative of the people who participate in the HM.
Our interest is to encourage participation in all the organisms, but also someone who does not have a liking for any organism can participate just in the Movement.
The most important thing is that those who participate in an organism have a real internal commitment to it. It is good that those who do not participate in an organism do not try to influence it.
Some apparatuses acting from the Movement could remain, without participating in any organism, such as for example the Pressenza news agency, and publishing or video production teams, as well as those who look after the Movement’s websites with links to the Organisms. It’s also recommended that until January the function carried out by the General Coordinator Delegate be maintained, as this function is the one coordinating the International Team of the World March.
With the interest of not affecting the activities of the World March, from September, a new international list of the WM will be created; open to all those interested, independently of which organism they are in. In different countries similar lists could also be created. These lists will fulfill, as a priority, the function of allowing all the information we are interested in to circulate.
This new list will allow the existing lists related to the previous organization of the HM to be replaced (councils, sectors, coordination bodies and assembly). It is suggested not to eliminate any of the current lists until the lists of the organisms are functioning. For that we will give ourselves a timescale of one month.
We also propose the creation of an international website that contains the basic documents of the HM in various languages with links to the International sites of each of the 5 organisms.
The Spokespersons will continue in their functions until the 2nd of January and their contact lists will be maintained to synchronize the declarations and opinions that are sent out regarding the WM.
With the aim of generating a good new condition of origin, it will be opportune that the Promotion Teams or Committees give themselves appropriate functions as soon as possible. We are talking about the immediate implementation of the new stage.
